All About Me

become the best youHello there, and welcome to my blog!

I’m Reneé a full time wife and mama of three trying my best. I consider myself a fearlessly authentic blogger, documenting the highs and lows of our roller coaster life.

I write about everything from my own mental health to my eldest daughter’s autism, our not entirely by choice home education journey, the food we eat which is largely Paleo/GAPS and the things we like to do.

I wrote the self-help book Become the Best You which was published in December 2014. Part memoir part self-help, it details how I got myself from rock bottom back to happy.

I am currently on the seventh draft of my second book, a fictional novel about one woman’s ride through motherhood.

Take a look, I hope you like what you see.

  1. Thanks so much for the mention! It’s certainly a topic that has many different opinions. I’m definitely in the camp of leaving meaningful comments if a post resonates, also love sharing though, obvs 😉

  2. So lovely to read more about you Mummy Tries. And hats off to you for surviving with three kiddiewinks! I can barely handle two!!! Here’s to About #SoFoLo Maddie from Gammon & Chips. xoxo

  3. It is nice to find out a bit more about you. I completely understand and respect your choice to be anonymous, even though I have to say frequently wonder what your first name might be as we read each other’s blog regularly. x Mel #PoCoLo

  4. Hello Sandra,

    The book sounds fab, and I’m really flattered that you’ve asked me to review it, but right now I just can’t commit to anything. My third baby is only 10 days old, and I also have a 2yo & 4½yo. I’m also trying to write a book myself…lots going on. When things calm down a little I’d love to take a look.

    All the best xx

  5. Hi Mummy Tries,
    I’ve just had two of my short stories published in an anthology and wondered if you would review the book on your blog?
    It’s called ‘The Milk of Female Kindness’ and includes short fiction, poetry, art, memoir and medical writing on the theme of honest motherhood. Some of the writers have recently given birth, others are grandmothers. Some, like me, are childless; my writing is inspired by memories of my own mother. Some of the pieces will make you smile, others are heartbreaking.

    I’d be very happy to send you an e-book or hard copy, or some sample stories.
    Best wishes and thanks,
    Sandra @

  6. Hi Mummytries – I’m really enjoying reading your posts. I see that our children are similar ages although my eldest turns 4 in early Sept so will just miss the next school year. Its very good to hear the thoughts of someone in the same position though. Congratulations on a great blog!
